Jason Patten, the Rehabilitation Coach for Carlton Football Club, says “Relaxation is very important for recovery. The quicker we get the players to relax, the quicker their bodies to return back to their base-line state, which is technically better for their recovery. It also does wonders to help with sleep."
According to the article on their website, it appears that the benefits of using the Floatation Tank for relaxation are already being felt and noticed, particularly when floating prior to a skills session where improvement in their skills are noticeable.
Carlton has an Apollo ELV Floatation Tank, the same as the one we have at our Floatation Center. Floatation Therapy is known to have numerous benefits to athletes, or anyone who trains or exercises on a regular basis.
